TouchID on Mac often not offered


Recommended Posts

Here with Enpass on macOS on a 2018 Macbook Air... which has TouchID.

Enpass is inconsistent as to whether Touch ID is offered in the user interface. Sometimes it is, sometimes it isn't, and there doesn't appear to be a clear pattern to it. For instance it wasn't working earlier in this work-session (after the latest upgrade this morning, I am on latest version), but when I went to log into this site, suddenly it is working.

Of course, sometimes the laptop is used in clamshell-mode with a thunderbolt dock and monitor, so it's not possible to use TouchID at those times. But often enough the lid *is* open, TouchID *should* be accessible, but Enpass doesn't offer it when I want to unlock it.

I wouldn't be surprised if this is actually an issue with the Apple API for accessing these things, but thought at least let's register it and see what response there is.

BTW partly because of this and partly because sometimes we do use it in clamshell mode, it would be nice to be able to set up *both* TouchID and a PIN, not have to choose one or the other.
